99 Flake

Today, although there was a cool breeze, we had "99 Flake" ice creams from the ice cream van this afternoon. Emily and I sat outside to eat them but it's now getting cooler so I've come inside. Quiet day today, spent the morning catching up on ironing from the last week. It took a while but it's finally done and I can forget about it again. Still trying to decide what we're going to have for dinner tonight, we're down to just Jon, Emily and I as Hugh is working and Claire's going to Craig's. I guess this is what happens as your children grow up ;o).
Emily and I are hoping to see either The Blind Side (which Sandra Bullock won the Oscar for) or Dear John tomorrow. Have any of you seen either? Are they any good? We tend to wait for movies to come out on DVD but seeing as Emily is still on holiday this week we thought it might be good to actually go to movies for a change! Will let you know if we get there ;o)


  1. Wow The Blind Side is already on cable tv over here. Dear John is still in theatres I think - or only recently finished I think. MMmm I love ice creams with Flakes :) Thats given me an idea - maybe I'll make the children ice cream floats later!!

  2. Mr Whippy ice-cream, yum :-) (I prefer my flake on the side though!)

    I don't get to the cinema much myself - usually only to take The Children to see a kids' film - except for the Harry Potters when they come out, I always go along and see those on the first day of release :-)

  3. Well, thanks a lot, Rhona. Now I want ice cream. :o\ lol

    My husband and I saw Blind Side last weekend and loved it. I haven't seen Dear John - you'll have to let us know if you do and if you recommend it.

  4. Looks yummy! I haven't seen either movie, I tend to wait for DVDs I can watch in the scraproom. :)

  5. We saw Blind Side a few weeks ago and loved it! Haven't seen Dear John. The ice cream sure looks good!

  6. I haven't seen either film; but I do love a 99..they still feel like a massive treat to me because when we were kids we were always told they were too expensive.
